When rumors of a new super-drug surface, the FBI comes to Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini for help. It becomes quickly apparent that the drug is merely the tip of a deadly iceberg and a much more insidious plan is underway involving Titan Security, Gaultier Enterprises, and YatesCorp.

As newly discovered A-Cs and hybrids begin to surface, each with expanded and deadly talents, more and more signs point to a new evil genius who’s using the A-Cs and their enemies both as guinea pigs. Then Area 51 and the Dulce Science Center go silent while Alpha Team, Airborne, and most of the worldwide A-C Security team are there for training. And if that’s not bad enough, Centaurion Division is hit with more bad, and deadly, news: Chernobog the Ultimate, isn’t a hacker myth, he’s a real person — and he’s on the bad guys’ side.

Now Kitty and company must find the real Dr. Feelgood and stop him or her before the latest version of Surcenthumain hits the streets and more people they love are harmed, or worse. But when the inconceivable happens, Kitty’s focused on two things only: reviving the ACE entity before their enemies realize Earth’s best protection isn’t actually active…and revenge.

  1. Nothing this week that I need to read, but I do like a bunch of those covers :)

    • I loved The Accidental Werewolf 2 and I still need to read Kicking It and Cecy Robson’s books. *sigh* So much to do!

  2. Half of this list is setting on my ereader from Netgalley or on my shelf in paperback from the publisher. I need to get to reading!

    • You sure do. December is already here!

      • I know. I know. I’ve been a lazy reader and prefer audios these days.

  3. I got only two that I’m getting (thank God, I’m going broke with all the sales) I’m preorder Kinked, and I’m going to try The Accidental Werewolf.
    Thanks!

    • Is Dakota Cassidy’s series available in audio? I must investigate… with the right narrator they’d be super fun listens.

      • Nope. I looked a few months ago. It would be good with King or Ronconi as the narrator.

  4. If only Kicked was a bit cheaper I would snatch it up in the blink of an eye. Oh well, plenty of other books on their way to my home :)

    • I’m sure the price will probably drop after the holidays. :)

  5. Have you read that Tessa Adam series? Is it any good?

    • I have not. Sorry.

  6. I picked up A Cursed Moon (you know I love Cecy) and the first Accidental Werewolf (gotta catch up) as well as Something About Harry this week. So many others look good but gotta budget…some more goodies coming out this month :)

    • Budget? What’s that?? LOL

  7. I want kicking it, but I’m waiting for my audible credits to kick in for the month – it’s too expensive for me to buy outright. Other than that, none are urgent buys for me, thank goodness – totally broke from all these saleS1

    • Kicking It is a little pricey. I hate when they do that. :(

  8. Some of these are already on my list but I think I have a couple more to add to my never ending reading pile…thanks Carmel! LOL ;)

    • Hey, it’s your own fault for checking out my new release post. You knew what you were getting yourself in to. LOL

  9. I gobbled up Cecy Robson’s A Curse Moon already, I am so loving this series. Thanks for sharing these releases :)

    • I’m jealous. Robson’s books have been on my to-read pile for way too long.
